This presentation is about my experience with Informix OnBar in the last 6 years. It covers high level Informix backup/restore concepts. It goes into detail on our flexible backup/restore environment which incorporates OnBar and EMC BCVs. I explain how we use both technologies to refresh our test databases (we run Informix under SAP). I go into detail on two interesting restore scenarios with OnBar that demonstrate the products reliability and hardiness (i.e. restarting a restore to successful completion even after a DB crash!).
